Timeline

A Spark of an Idea

The Wray Rehabilitation & Activities Center, better known as the “WRAC,” is the result of a group of local individuals who had a vision to create a health, educational, wellness and activities center that would benefit the entire community. This founding team met weekly, as early as, 6:30 a.m. for up to six years researching, designing and building the WRAC. Regionally, there was a need for a one-stop shop. There is no other facility like ours between Greeley and North Platte (Nebraska).


On April 1, 1992, this 2.4 million dollar facility, built with money raised through fundraisers, private donations, and grants opened its doors for the first time and greeted the first guest. Since then, the WRAC has earned local, state, and national recognition such as "All-America City," the Joel A. H. Webb Award for Excellence in Health Care given by Colorado's El Pomar Foundation and selection by the National Governors Association for case studies of innovative programs in a rural area. Additionally, in 2013 our PHIT program (Physical Health Initial Tasks) won the regional Community Partnership Award from the National Extension Association of Family & Consumer Sciences.


The WRAC is a 501(c)3 nonprofit.

The WRAC is located on the site of the old Wray Elementary school.
